  • Our Mission
  • Why a Festival?
  • Who is it for?
  • To increase awareness and positive engagement in the climate crisis in Stirling University and the wider Stirling community
  • To provide the opportunity to learn skills for individual and collective tackling of the climate emergency
  • Help to provide an understanding of the importance of COP26
  • Bringing the climate agenda to a wider audience and showing why a green transition would work for the people
  • Helping people to understand the intersectionality of climate crisis, how it is inextricably linked to other social justice issues such as gender and race equality as well as its connection to global trade and politics
  • The Climate Emergency is often overlooked in the media by other social and political issues, and when it is represented, it is generally either as a problem which is already being sorted, so don't worry, or as an insurmountable challenge on a path down which we have gone too far. Neither of these narratives are true or in any way helpful in addressing the issue. The fact is that tackling climate chaos is a great challenge, and a problem which won't just go away, however this festival will hopefully show and teach that real meaningful change is possible through personal and collective actions, creative expression and pushing for systemic change in systems which uphold climate injustice.
  • There will be something for everyone at the festival , young and old, clued up or not so sure about what climate change is, folks who would like to try their hand making rugs or murals or those who want to hear why corporate courts are one of the biggest threats to global warming. There will be live music and ceilidhs to wind down at the end of a long day and plenty of food and drink from local businesses to keep your hunger sated and thirst quenched!
